Day hikes around Santa Fe on 08/18/2013 18:33:24 MDT Print View

Around the end of the first week of September my wife and I will be Santa Fe for five days. We are looking for day hike suggestions within an hour or two of Santa Fe. We will likely have one clear day for hiking.

We are open to any and all suggestions. We wouldnt have any difficulty doing a 15-20 mile day with major elevation.

Any feed back much appreciated

The perimeter has reopened after the fires so there's the western lakes (keep going up to the TH by Ski Santa Fe from the NE side of Santa Fe) or Hamilton Mesa via Iron Creek TH and maybe Pecos Falls if you are feeling energetic - classic dayhike (drive through Pecos, NM on I-25 and go past Terroro, pull off on the right ... check to see if muddy because it might require rent a 4WD).

Add: the interior of the Pecos WIlderness is still closed due to the Jaraso wilderness, so you may want an update from the Santa Fe NF website before you leave.
